    Hi~, thanks for this useful plugin !
    I set date and time, title. But when I turn off edit mode, nothing appears except for title. Did I missed something ?

    Hey Lee! Can you show me some screenshots please? And of course, it will be better if you'll create new issue here: and we will discuss your problem there. Thanks!

    I installed the plugin and noticed the following issues:

    1) When the timer is finishing counting down, it is just stuck on 00:00:00, and the count down message only appears after I manually refresth the webpage. Is this a bug?

    2) Is it possible that you'll update the plugin so it will support adding multiple instances of the final countdown block?

    3) Could you include an example of a custom css code that applies styles to the text shown in the block?
    Please also include it as an example in the (final countdown) block settings page.

    Hello Acqua Alta
    1) It's expected for current version, but can be fixed for sure.
    2) I'll try to find some time on next weekend to check and fix it (and #1 as well).
    3) Not sure I can give you some useful examples, it's should not be a problem for you if you have experience with CSS. Check the original css that provided with this plugin to see what you can modify in your custom styles or use debugger.

    Hi Yevhen,
    Thank you very much. I had to chance to test the previous (Mid April 2019?) version, and found out that you implemented the fixes that I asked for.

    I see that you released today even a newer version. What is the difference between it and the previous version?

    Thanks a lot, again.

    The latest release is just a hotfix for old PHP 5.3 (the last supported Moodle version is 2.6). Seems like you use newer one so no worries.

    Is this plugin compatible with Moodle 3.7?

    Hi. Can it count down to a specific time e.g. or can it only count down to a set day and then to 12pm?
